on cnn. we already know that jodi arias killed her on again/off again boyfriend travis alexander back in 2008. that is not in dispute. what we're waiting to hear a half hour from here is what the jury will or will not convict her on. jurors began weighing the case against arias on friday. on the table are charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, and manslaughter. if convicted of first-degree murder arias could get the death penalty but she could also get life in prison without parole or life in prison with the eligibility of parole after 25 years. of course, she could also be found not guilty. prosecutors painted arias as a serial liar and scorned ex-lover who killed travis alexander in a jealous rage. while the defense portrayed alexander as an abusive, controlling, sexual deviant who pushed arias to the edge. arias says she killed her ex in self-defense. that is her story now. she initially offered police several different versiones of what happened the night alexander was killed. first she denied having been there then blamed the attack on home invaders. eventually she
. there are friend and relatives of travis alexander around here, staying in a hotel. i talked to a good friend yesterday and another friend the day before. we know travis's sisters have been here. they're in the area. lawyers have to get assembled. we were told it was going to be one hour after the verdict was reached that it would be read, now it's more like two hours. they have to get everyone in court and have this read. >> shepard: hang tight. johnathan hunt, it's been a long road. if you're in the jury room, you have to say to yourself what, do i believe and not believe. based on the questioning along the way, it felt like they were doing more questioning and mocking of the defense than the prosecution. >> it will be interesting if we here from the jurors. it's fascinating to find out did they go in the room with one holdout when looking at first-degree murder or second degree? how did it develop? what were the services that -- conversations. >> trace, we've seen this before. juries surprise you. >> they always surprise you. we have to keep in mind three jurors in the process were dismiss
for killing her ex-boyfriend travis alexander. the jury began deliberation yesterday following closing arguments. ted rollins is in phoenix. >> reporter: the jury deliberated for about abhour on friday before going home for the weekend. they'll be back on monday morning to begin again. before they started deliberations they sat and listened to more than soechb hours of closing arguments. jodi arias sat and watched both sides. absolutely without a shadow of a doubt she's a liar. >> prosecutor told arias planned the 2008 murder driving from northern california to arizona armed with a knife and a stolen dwun. he says after having sex with around she atamted him while his guard was down while he was posing photos in the shower. >> she absolutely knew and had already planned it. she knew. she was going to kill him. >> family members of travis alexander broke down while mar te nez showed crime scene photos showing the brutally of the killing where around was shot in the head and stabbed nearly 30 times. >> he was killed in three different ways, a stab wound to the hart would have killed him.
alexander. secondly, that she intended or knew she would cause the death of travis alexander and three, that she acted with premeditation which is the deliberation and moment of thought and planning. now, first degree murder, the prosecution also always has the felony murder theory before the jury here so they can determine first degree murder has been proven by the following, jodi arias committed or attempted to commit a dangerous crime and that would be burglary. once she entered into the home and was invited into the home, once she started stabbing him, she wasn't invited into the home anymore. >> wait, jean, hold on. that confuses me. they spent quite a bit of time in that home and she was very much a welcome visitor having relations with him for hours and hours on end. what you're saying is it becomes a burglary the minute a crime starts being committed like a stabbing. >> reporter: yes, correct. the minute that the stabbing or the shot according to the prosecutions theory began she wasn't invited into the home anymore. so she was breaking an entering with the attempt to commit th
. but the jurors clearly did not believe jodi arias when she claimed she killed travis alexander in self-defense. the shear brutality of this act may have been too much for the jury to overlook. five years after police found his verdict, the verdict released a flood of emotion in the courtroom and outside. the victim's family members openly weeped in the gallery as they realized they finally got the justice that they so long had sought. dan springer is live outside the courthouse. dan, the reaction out there, we saw it, it was emotional. >> yeah, shep. the jury didn't believe jodi arias' story of self-defense and neither did much of the public. it was a wild scene on the steps of the courthouse out here. the crowd swelled to 300 people. just before the verdict was read. we started to hear chants of justice for travis. then when the guilty first degree murder the courtroom erupted in cheer. inside the courtroom they cried very very emotional. jodi arias was subdued. she bit her lip and she looked ba back at her mother grandmother and aunt. she looked very different from the woman who famo

and are's voice from beyond the grif and that he was doing justice for travis alexander and they will not be satisfied unless jodi arias gets the death penalty. i've ahad a lot of exchanges on twitter. this has been discussed over social media and many people that reached out to me -- >> i think we just lost diana -- we hope to get her back -- we had technical issues there. but the breaking news now is that there is a verdict in the jodi arias trial. we will hear that verdict at 1:30 pacific time. that's 4:30 eastern time. about two hours from now. diana is back to us. let's go back to closing arguments. that's the last time we had you on and we spoke about the difference if strategy from the prosecution to the defense and what they presented in their final, i guess, day with the jury. >> this was their last chance to leave a lasting impression on that jury p. this is a jury taking notes, paying attention to what they have been saying. i watch had jurors as they watch the prosecutor and defense attorney and they were hanging on every word that each of those gentlemen sai
-year-old of kill her former boyfriend travis alexander in 2008. arias is going to begin the next phase of the trial, sentencing. and she could face the death penalty. the verdict was read to a packed courtroom as hundreds of spectators, people just came to the phoenix courthouse to watch this just a short time ago. >> state of arizona versus jod e ari arias, verdict, count one. we the jury do duly impanelled and sworn in the above entitled action upon our oath do find the defendant as to count one first-degree murder guilty. >> that's where cnn's ashleigh banfield and senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin are tonight. jodi arias found guilty of premeditated murder of her boyfriend. this trial went on for four months, more than four months. the defendant took the stand in what seems to be a record 18 days of this country. why so much time and focus? >> well, it doesn't get more serious than this, erin. death penalty case and let's be clear, the circumstances and the fact pattern in this case were really grizzly. and there was a lot to get through. not only that, but jodi arias had changed
that she didn't plan the murder of her ex-boyfriend travis alexander. >> there was no premeditation on my part. i can see how things look that way. but i didn't expect the premeditation. i can see maybe the felony murder because of how the law is written but i didn't -- the whole time i was fairly competent i wouldn't bet premeditation because there was no premeditation. >> reporter: she also said she hopes the family of travis alexander will be able to find peace. in the courtroom when the verdict was read, alexander's sisters broke down with emotion. >> they're happy. you know, we would rather have travis back but we can't have travis back. so with that said, this is a good day. >> reporter: outside the courthouse hundreds of spectators cheered the guilty verdict. some people were even overcome with emotion. >> why are you so emotional? >> you know, justice was served and that's all we needed. >> reporter: the guilty verdict means jodi arias is eligible for the death penalty and arias says she hopes that's exactly what her sentence will be. >> the worse outcome for me would be natural l
trial. she's accused of killing travis alexander in 2008. 12 people now have to decide if she killed in self-defense or 34r57b planned the entire thing. >> imagine what that's like for a jury to sit there in that jury room especially if you were one of those jurors that felt it was kind of close on premeditation but you went along with it because you said, okay being everybody else is doing it. >> they will not only determine if someone is convicted of first-degree murder, but they will determine if someone is sentenced to death. >> if sentenced to death, her time outside of her cell will be extremely limited. she can go outside for exercise three times a week two hours each time and she can have a shower three times a week. >> casey wian is on verdict watch in phoenix, arizona. good morning, casey. >> reporter: good morning. of course jodi arias is on trial for murder and that has been the focus for nearly four months. but a lot of people here in phoenix want to make sure that the victim in this case, travis alexander, is not forgotten. last night here, they held a candlelight vigil
travis alexander. there will be another round of testimony that will help decide what happened to her, her sentence. we'll have coverage on the verdict and the crucial next steps in a death penalty prosecution. but we're going to begin in cleveland, ohio, where ariel castro was brought in this morning to face four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape. and believe me, those words don't even begin to describe the horrors that this unemployed former school bus driver allegedly inflicted on three young women on a daily basis for between nine and 11 years. castro was preceded in court by his brothers pedro and onil castro, who were taken in with him on monday night, but are not being charged in the brutality that was inflicted on seymour avenue. they did face some outstanding misdemeanor charges, and in unrelated cases that were, believe me, very old cases, but they were dispensed with quickly. ariel castro, on the other hand, barely looked up, and never spoke a word as the judge set bail at $8 million. and that is more than the prosecutor brian murphy was even asking for. mr. mur
for killing her ex-boyfriend travis alexander. shortly after that verdict arias spoke out in a shocking interview with a phoenix station. let's listen. >> just a couple minutes ago you heard the verdict from the jury, what are your thoughts? >> i think i just went blank. just, um -- i don't know. i just feel overwhelmed. i think i just need to take it a day at a time. >> is that what you expected? >> it was unexpected for me, yes, because there was no premeditation on my part. i can see how things look that way. but i didn't expect the premeditation. i could see maybe the felony murder because of how the law is written, but i didn't -- the whole time i was fairly confident i wouldn't get premeditation because there was no premeditation. >> in that same interview arias makes it clear she wants death. let's play that portion of her comments. >> i said years ago that i'd rather get death than life and that still is true today. i believe death is the ultimate freedom. so i'd rather just have my freedom the soonest i can get it. >> so you're saying you actually prefer getting the death penal
yesterday, that they had received a just verdict for travis alexander, jodi arias, ever the scene stealer jumped in and said she would like to have the death penalty as opposed to life in prison without parole. jon: do you believe that? >> in my experience, fox news viewers are some of the smartest viewers in cable news and i don't think i need to tell them, just like i probably wouldn't need to tell the jurors to be highly skeptical of that. i think that was, as you said the defense strategy to keep her in the room with those jurors for long enough for them to find it hard for them to put her to death. i think that was not a safe bet at all, based on the fact that they were unanimous in finding premeditation. they were very, when they were polled and asked individually, if that was their verdict, they were quick and strong in their responses, yes, your honor, it was. so i think that a lot of folks in jodi arias's position fancied themselves as master manipulators. i'm not sure she has manipulated anyone here, jon. jon: well they could give her life in prison without the possibility of pa
, it's been a really long time. travis alexander died in june of 2008 will. and now, today, in just an hour, we are going to be hearing jodi arias's fate. >> all right. diana alvear, thank so you much. i will now bring in two former prosecutors and defense attorneys, ricky claimon and karen desoto. ricky, let me start with you. first degree murder means there is some sort of premeditated. do you think they have met that bar in this case? >> i think they met that bar or reasonable people could say so. but it is up to the jury to decide if the prosecution did their burden of proof. met their burden of proof, both in quality and quantity, beyond a reasonable doubt. >> s.e.? >> yeah, i want it ask karen about the four day deliberation. i good d a quick search and did found other cases. casey anthony 4 hours to 20 minutes. o.j. less than 4 hours. what does this tell us, if anything? >> this is interesting. as many cases as i've tried, you know, there is no rhyme or reason. a lot of people say in a more complicated case, if they come back quickly then it is not favorable for the defendant
: we just saw one of travis alexander's friends leave the courthouse and that is why you heard the applause there. >> ted, we are over a block away from you. we can hear the eruptions of emotions, the screams. jeffrey toobin and i getting breaking news on our blackberries about some of the breakdowns of the jury vote. if you're just joining us i want to reset what we're covering here in phoenix, arizona outside of the maricopa county superior courthouse. a jury of eight men and four women has just reached its verdict and delivered that verdict in the courtroom, guilty. jodi arias is guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of travis alexander, a brutal, to be sure, a brutal and painful death. that that man suffered over four years ago. jodi arias could have been found not guilty. she also could have been found guilty of lesser includeds. that did not happen. now this story will move to another phase, a phase in which the jury needs to decide if ther life is worth saving or if her life needs to be taken in the death penalty phase. i want to break down for you inside the cour
hopes that travis alexander's family can finally find some sense of peace and move on with their lives. it felt very unsettling to hear her say this moments after she was convicted of killing him. so definitely a very chilling interview. >> three women on death row in arizona. no woman has been executed in 83 years. this is a complex process that we're beginning this death penalty phase of the trial here. but what has been the reaction, at least from the people you've been talking to. i know you followed this extensively as well on social media. do you get the sense that people feel the death penalty is the necessary next step? >> i put that question out there on twitter last night wondering what public opinion was. overwhelmingly, many, many people saying that they felt she deserved a death sentence. as you mentioned, this is a very complex process. what will happen today is that the prosecutor has to convince the jury that jodi arias's crime was cruel. that's the aggravating factor that they need to agree on for them to proceed with the death penalty. if they decide it wasn't cruel,
attacked the victim, travis alexander, saying not only abused arias but was a pedophile. he played a portion of a phone sex tape when alexander compares arias to a 12-year-old girl. >> who says that? you cannot write that off to the heat of the moment. that is sick. and that is wrong. you can't put any spin on that. >> reporter: combined both sides argued for more than seven hours, prosecutor juan martinez had the last word. >> in this case, travis victor alexander was slaughtered by this woman. slashed his throat. she stabbed him in the heart and then she shot him in the face and all of that, thinking about it in advance. thank you. >> reporter: ted roland, cnn, phoenix, arizona. >> for more on the jodi arias trial, don't it the miss the anderson cooper special, "sexes, lies & audio tape." that's tonight at 8:00 eastern. >>> and more on how dzhokhar tsarnaev d-- tamerlan tsarnaev died. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters.
